Last chance to catch this 1948 ‘Treasure’

You'll find several enduring moments in John Huston's 1948 film "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre."

Pretty much anytime Humphrey Bogart takes the screen, you'll see something memorable. The ironic laughing scene with Walter Huston and Tim Holt works, too.

But the most enduring scene of the film highlights the talents of the Mexican-American actor Alfonso Bedoya, who plays the bandit leader known only as Gold Hat. His most famous scene comes when the American gold miners, confronted by Gold Hat and his gang — who are posing as federal troops — ask him to show their badges.

But if you prefer, you can see the film in full at two local Regal Cinemas theaters, Northtown Mall and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Stadium, today at 2 and 7 p.m. The screenings are part of a Fathom Events 70th anniversary special.

Don't forget to bring your badges.
